Two passionate Vanlife cooks and the creators of Vanlife Eats.

On a recent trip to a campsite in Aylesbury we decided to visit the on-site farm shop. With super fresh ingredients, we decided to make a stove-top meal for two. A campsite in the UK in March isn’t the warmest of trips away so we decided a bit of stodge was in order. Hence the gnocchi lasagna we’re sharing with you now. The best bit is you don’t even need an oven! This gnocchi lasagna was made on our 2 burner hob in our van.

  • 1 tin Finely chopped tinnned tomatoes

  • Season the beef with salt, then add to the pan with the onions.

  • When all the beef is browned (5-10 minutes), add the gnocchi. Cook for a further 2 minutes
  • Add the tomatoes to the pan and put the lid on & leave to cook while you make your cheese sauce. Take the lid off after 10 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce.

  • In a seperate pan add the 1 tbsp of butter over a low heat.
  • When melted add 1 tbsp flour and stir continuously to make a roux

  • Remember to check your gnocchi mix!
  • Add your cheese and keep mixing 💪
  • Pour the cheese sauce over the gnocchi mixture and spread evenly.
